Love is somewhere near the bottom of Lily Thomas’ list of life goals, right next to competitive eating and underwater cave diving. She’s spent six years pirouetting and pliéing her way up the ranks of the New York Ballet with her eye on the prize and love in the back seat. But now that Blane Baker -- Lily’s long time crush -- is finally single, she’ll throw her rules out the window without thinking twice.
Reality with Blane isn’t as epic as the fantasy she imagined, and the truth sends her spinning straight into the arms of the man she never knew she’d always wanted.
West Williams has been friends with Lily since the day she moved into their building and he saved her armoire from a swift, sudden death by staircase. Their friendship has always been easy, the boundaries clearly defined. With neither of them willing to risk their relationship, they’ve drifted happily through the years as companions, never considering more.
That is, until they do. And that realization changes everything.
When Staci writes, I read, I haven’t read a book of hers that I didn’t like and I have to stay I am madly in love with Lily and West. The entire group of friends is fantastic and I can’t wait to read the rest of these books to find out about the other friends and read about their stories.
The story revolves around Lily and West they are pretty much best friends that have no idea that they like each other a lot more than just friends. Lily is a little hung up on a guy she has assumed she loved forever. I know how she feels, it’s hard to let go of someone that you loved for a long time but sometimes the love you are looking for is right in front of your face. West is adorable and just the nicest guy EVER. Probably his southern charm and the man-bun doesn’t hurt either. I never realized a man-bun until I read this book, now I see them everywhere. So far none as hot as West but I am thinking that is a good thing. Lily got on my nervous a little bit in the beginning but I think it’s because I knew what was going on and her not seeing it was driving me crazy. It was nice to watch her realize what everyone else knew already.
I loved the romance and it had lots of very funny banter. I adored the relationship between Rose and Lily, they are the kind of friends every girl wants. Even the guys Cooper and Patrick (Tricky) have such a strong bond with West it’s nice and they are protective of Lily. I adored the entire clan of friends.
This book is a must read, it has a lot of sexual tension and a few but not many steamy scenes but it fits perfect with this book. I love Staci’s writing and I can’t wait to read more from her. I highly recommend this book and a must add to everyone’s To-Be Read list Like NOW!
